In the traditional sense, "reservations" is a broken model. Restaurants have no guarantee that you'll show up; they can take a credit card, but it's not actually legal to charge you if you don't show up. It's why places like Next in Chicago went to a tickets model.

I'm surprised West Coast restaurants tolerate not getting a piece of the action.
